ARCTIC CAT ALTERRA 90 ($2,999)
The Arctic Cat 90 picks up the Alterra name for 2017. It
shares the DVX 90 engine and frame, but it is styled as a
mini version of an Arctic Cat utility ATV. Cargo racks are
on the front and rear of the little machine, and its single-A-arm front suspension with swingarm rear suspension help
it carry up to 25 pounds between the two racks.
CAN-AM DS 70 ($2,349)
Can-Am’s DS 70 is new for 2017 and is a great little
machine to get young riders into the sport. It has a single-cylinder, four-stroke engine that is paired with a
fully automatic CVT transmission. The hand controls are
just right for small hands, and the drum brakes slow this
machine down. It has both electric starting and a kickstarter.
CAN-AM DS 90 ($2,849)
The DS 90 shares the same frame and engine platform
as the DS 70, but the 90 is more powerful. The automatic
CVT transmission makes this Can-Am easy to operate,
and there is a built-in throttle limiter. Single-A-arm-type
front suspension has 3. 4 inches of travel, while a swingarm rear suspension provides 6. 3 inches of travel.
CAN-AM DS 90 X ($3,749)
Can-Am’s DS 90 X is more sport-oriented and wider ( 43. 7
inches) than the DS 90 ( 35 inches) to give it a more stable
ride for higher speeds. While the 89.5cc, single-cylinder,
four-stroke motor isn’t the fastest youth ATV mill around,
it is enough to compete with. The DS 90 X comes with an
aluminum front bumper/number plate and nerf bars.
HISUN AXIS 110 ($2,099)
The Axis 110 is Hisun’s sportiest-styled ATV that your
kid will like. It has an electronic-starting system and is
electronically fuel-injected. A 108cc four-stroke engine is
at the heart of this little machine. Hydraulic disc brakes
help slow it down in the front and rear, and the Axis even
comes with reverse.
HISUN FORGE 110 ($2,199)
The Axis and Forge 110 share the same little four-stroke
108cc engine that is fuel-injected. An automatic CVT-style
transmission helps put the power to the rear wheels for
your youth to have a good time riding the trails. The Forge
is designed to look like a big 4x4 utility ATV. It has front
and rear cargo racks.
